It's the summer of breakups. New sources reveal that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are on the verge of a divorce after six years of marriage. 

TMZ reports that the couple separated in May, and have been secretly living apart for months. The site alleges that lawyers have already negotiated a property settlement and custody agreement between the couple, and the divorce is essentially a done deal.

A separate source told Page Six that the 44-year-old diva and her 33-year-old husband have been fighting a lot in recent months. "He hasn't been staying at their home," they said. "He's been living out of hotels."

The normally chummy couple haven't been photographed together in months, and they made their last public appearance in February for the premiere of Carey's "You're Mine" video, according to CBS. The singer, an active social media user, has not posted any pictures of Cannon since Father's Day in June, when she posted a cute snapshot with their twins, Moroccan and Monroe

Additionally, the couple did not renew their vows on their anniversary this year. Carey and Cannon have said "I Do" every year since they married in 2008. 

More details to come. What are your thoughts on the heartbreaking news?
